I wanted all the items in these photos. There is one other item that I wanted badly and didn’t buy…but you will have to keep checking back to see what it was.

I read that twice. Does that mean you didn't buy any of these glorious things?

I follow and I would pick 'flowered curtains' print. I like the colors in it :)

I want the blue box, the cow rug and the childs swing. I will go thru again. I would have a hard time holding back in that shop. Alabama is a little to far for me.

I read your last post, Renee and also visited Sarah Tetley's Etsy shop. Her watercolors are gorgeous and I am seiously thinking about ordering a few.

This place is astounding!! I love when I see a shop where it makes me want to buy everything up!!

Is that a sailboat on that shutter? Tell me you bought that! And you're going to do a post on something you didn't buy? Are you a masochist?! How can you torture yourself? How could you have that much willpower to pass up all of that?! Do you want me to stop asking you questions?! Well, you've drawn me in, and I can't wait to see what you didn't buy!

I don't know how I got to your blog but I don't know how I've missed it! I live in a 1949 "cottage" (translation, small house with cottagey furnishings, lots of beadboard and lots of painted 1970s panelling...) and love the print of the yellow cottage with the striped awning. My awnings are plain green, not striped, but I love the beachy feel of that picture, and the palm tree sneaking into the right side. Enter me in your giveaway, please, and I'll definitely be back and put you on my list of must-check-daily blogs now that I've found you!
